"The town of Culbertson and the Horace Mann Post No. 81 of the American Legion have filed a lawsuit involving the family of House Speaker Austin Knudsen over access to a 35-acre park that hugs the Missouri River. The suit was filed in August against the Knudsen Family Limited Partnership in August and involves a “road strip” on Knudsen property to Legion Park, which is southeast of town."

  • Knudsen closed access.

  • Knudsen sued vets.

  • Knudsen lied about it.

"I was horrified to learn that Austin Knudsen, who is running for Attorney General, is preventing access to a Veteran’s Park in his hometown of Culbertson. The park is owned by the local American Legion Post and for generations veterans and the public have used a legal right-of-way to access the park. Knudsen has now illegally closed off this access clearly placing his personal interests above those of the public, while also sending a clear message to veterans like me, how he truly feels about the brave men and women of our armed forces."

-Kyle Meakins, Veteran

"And he has even blocked access to veterans in his home town to their own public park. It’s abhorrent behavior that demonstrates the real character of Austin Knudsen."
